The first half of 2011 is coming to an end, and none too soon for those of us engaged in building products. The second half looks to be much better for our industry and the economy in general. Unemployment is expected to decline from here – finally – slowly, but steadily. Gas prices are forecasted to continue to come down, as always, not as fast as they shot up, but back into a more reasonable range as the summer progresses. These two facts should make consumers feel better about where they are in life and hopefully be ready to spend some money again.
For us in building products, we hope at least some of that increase in spending will go to fixing up homes. There isn’t much that makes a homeowner feel better than improving their home. It’s an investment in the future. Whether they plan to stay in the home, or hope to sell it when prices start to rebound, improving a home offers many benefits. You and your family are happier while you remain living there, and if the plan is to sell, making “good” improvements will add value to it for the future.
Things like highly energy efficient replacement windows make your home more attractive, more comfortable, and add significant value to it. If you’ve been putting off replacing those ugly drafty old windows, how about doing it now? Remember, things are getting better even if the politicians don’t want you to think so. Over 90% of people have jobs and aren’t losing them. Gas prices are coming down, and there are some great values and sales going on with windows and doors for your home. Check the internet for a good, reputable home improvement dealer in your area and check out their credentials, then call them for a free in home estimate – you won't regret it – it’s time to take this economy back into your own hands and make that decision.
